The Other Side of Beauty

Drawing on her experience on America's Next Top Model and her work as a fashion model, Leah Darrow exposes the lies we are told about our worth being tied to our appearance and instead invites us to look again at the real meaning of beauty.

She shows how we can reclaim true and lasting beauty--the kind that doesn't depend on self-doubt, exploitation, or comparison--when we reflect God's glory and embrace our value as he made us to be:

STRONG, BRAVE, AND FREE.

Only when we learn to see ourselves as God does can we leave behind our culture's definitions and demands and find joy in The Other Side of Beauty.
